Formed in 1996 as a non-profit organization, the Scarborough Basketball Associations has a simple game plan – to provide youth in and around the Scarborough area with the opportunity to grow and enjoy life through the sport of basketball.
For some of our youth, the SBA will be a launching pad for a successful basketball career in college or university.
Some may even go on to become professional players, based on the fundamentals that we helped them develop.
However, for most, the SBA and its basketball programs are simply a means of building character, developing friendships and having a whole lot of fun.
The philosophy and commitment to our basketball players is simple:
• Train and teach basketball fundamentals to all age levels
• Emphasize the importance of teamwork for all participants
• Practise the ideas of health, discipline, hard work and dedication
• Teach acceptable social behaviours in sport
• Give at-risk or disadvantaged youth the opportunity to participate in the program
• Provide an affordable REP program
• Put the welfare of the player first by creating an environment free of undue pressure from coaches and/or parents
